Hello and welcome,

My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to assist you today.
I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
this means that the engine has sensed a serious fault or missing sensor input which prevents it from operating normally.
you can drive the car in for repair as long as it is not making funny noises, smoking or overheating, but you should not try to continue to drive it normally day to day.
Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle
